This set is partly from a 27th generation copy of an Underground Flavas tape out of West London and partly from a rip which had been shared on the web a few years back [and subsequently been deaded in terms of linkage]. We’ve bumped the EQ in Izotope, compressed it a touch and tweaked it for your listening pleasure. This show is a great example of why Stretch is held is such high esteem by his peers within the industry as well as the listeners, he may have been a DJ and a host, but the actual...

This recording is the 1st Birthday/ Anniversary celebration of Nite FM on BBC Radio Londons’ Fresh Start to the Week Hip-Hop show, presented by the legendary Dave Pearce. UK Rap star Derek B features in interview, and im unaware of any other radio interview recordings with the RUSH recording artist, so this is a bit of an exclusive [Sidenote: Apparently Derek AKA EZQ co-wrote the Anfield Rap] .

What do we have here then? Oh just some insanely early WKCR action from back when the show was in it's infant stages and Stretch was still going by the name of DJ Skinny Bones... (quality isn't great for the first few minutes but settles down by the time the music starts) Although tons of tapes from the duo's 8 year run have been posted online these sessions from 1990 have proved hard to come by. Even Stretch and Bob themselves have been asking for them, so this was quite a find.  Shout out to...

This "Top 10 At 10" is from August 1995... Obviously there was a lot of great music dropping back then but the thing that really time-stamps the era is the banter between the songs - there's a lot of "keep it real," "represent" and "no diggedy," because that's how Rap People spoke back then...

There aren’t many classic live Rap battles that are recognised worldwide; Kool Moe Dee vs Busy Bee [ There’s one you should know ], or if you are a little younger from New York, maybe it’s Supernatural vs Craig G. Alternatively if you are from the West Coast, it’s gonna be the KMEL battle of 18th November 1994. The night two of the Bay Areas’ Rap crews metaphorically went for the throat.

This classic is a 34 year old recording of the Frankie Crocker breakfast show on WBLS!  Just like Grace Jones' The Apple Stretching, this is a beautiful snapshot of early morning early 80s New York, this time, from 1983. There may only be one Rap tune on this tape, but the recording is about much more than just one track, it's an illustration to younger generations, of how things used to be, as well as bein' a throwback to simpler times for the older listeners.

For the record, French Hip-Hop culture goes back, there is a history that goes back way way further than MC Solaar. This is bloody obvious to French heads but not somethin fans outside of the country might be aware of. When I associate anything French and Hip-Hop I think of Z-3 MC’s, and the French National Anthem. I think of Melle Mels’ oh si raffine rhymes on It’s Nasty; ‘I tour around the world to make the people dance, and here’s a little message for the ladies in France. Je...

If you are from outside of the UK, this may be the first time youve heard of the UK Fresh 86 shows. These were at Wembley Arena [NB: ARENA Rap in the UK in 1986] and were billed as 'The event of the decade'. Following the Fresh Fest template on offer in the US from the previous year, and with only 16000 people witnessing what became a pivotal performance of iconic 80s artists, this has arguably become the largest and most important LIVE event in old school UK Hip Hop history, and was part of...

Flex hosts his Friday night Street Jam show alongside Big Dennis, with Meth & Red passing through the studio and dropping the obligatory freestyle. Everything you'd expect Flex to be playing is in here: Lost Boyz, AZ, Wu Tang and Mary J, plus Mobb Deep, Kool G Rap and a nice indie joint right at the end that I hadn't heard before. Even the commercial break has some heat, with Biggie rapping over the Dogg Pound's New York New York beat for St Ides and a Tower Records ad for Only Built For...

Colby Colb and DJ Ran team up for the Top 5 of 1992, which aired on Power 99 on January 2, 1993 at 1:30am. This was recorded over two sides, but has been combined here (hence the slight break in "Deep Cover"). Love the call-ins and the references "Snoopy Doggy Dogg." Track Listing Scenario (Remix) (feat. A Tribe Called Quest)... Leaders of the New School Wicked... Ice Cube Mic Checka... Das EFX Deep Cover (feat. Snoop Doggy Dogg)... Dr. Dre Dwyck (feat. Nice & Smooth)......

Freestyles were a regular part of rap radio by 1997 but this is like a Mr Bongo regular's wet dream. It's a 37-minute freestyle session on Sway & Tech's Wake Up Show from late 1997 and the line up is immense. Kool G Rap, Craig G, Juice, Shorty Wreck, Eminem, Kwest Tha Madd Lad, Thirstin Howl, Wordsworth & Mos Def and Talib Kweli all step up and do their thing. A lot of those names were new on the scene at the time so there's definitely an element of hungry MCs with something to prove...

This classic Raw Deal episode comes shortly after the name transition from Club Krush. The Tommy Boy crew rolls massive into the studio including Naughty By Nature before their first album (as NBN) hit the shelves. Along with them is Prince Rakeem who, of course, later became Wu-Tang Clan's Rza. Interestingly, while he mentions his "Wu-Tang Slang style," the Wu-Tang crew had not yet been formed by that name. Instead, he was down with the DMD ("Dick 'Em Down") Posse. He...

This is not just another old school radio show. The operating room shows from Dr. Dre are very hard to find. And this one is imo very special. It contains an interview with KRS and Scott La Rock (6 months before his death) about the bridge wars, one of the important chapters of hip hop history. Scott is dissing Mr Magic, Shan and the Juice Crew and KRS is talking about The bridge and the reason to write 'the bridge is over'. This is like a time capsule back to 1987. - Dutch

Westwood – "Trust me, people be cryin if they didn’t have a blank cassette…" Cheo Cokers’ Enta da Stage review in The Source opened with "Hip-Hop’s most electrifying moments often occur off wax". This tape is evidence of that, and the importance of Rap radio. I wasn’t hitting the pause button alot in 1994, instead as you’ll hear, I used to fade out Westwood in favour of the music. Apologies if the blends sound abrupt, regrettably there are more quick fades on...

(from https://www.normalbias.org/2008/07/14/dj-ran-friday-night-street-jams-july-1-1993/ ) Back in 1993, DJ Ran was known throughout Philly, but hadn't yet reached the nationwide recognition he'd see a few years later when he began appearing on WCW television broadcasts, of all places. This mix is from the July 1, 1993 show Ran did with Don "Mystic" Mack on Power 99.  It kicks off with "Don't Ride Me Now" by Aisha (I think), which is a surprisingly driving track that I...

Diablo's collection is still throwing up some great Capital Rap Show tapes. This one has the original version of 'Outta Here' with the Mr Magic dis and a few deep cuts by the likes of Strickly Roots, Trends Of Culture and Juice With Soul. Crazy to think that the likes of Sound Of Da Police, Insane In The Brain, Come Clean and 93 Til Infinity were all hitting around the same time too.
